Apple pulls watchOS update after reports of bricked watches
Apple has rolled back an update to the operating system for its Smart Watch after customers complained the software was bricking the watch, rendering it unusable.
Apple pulled the Watch OS 3.1.1 update when some owners of the latest Series 2 Apple Watch reported seeing an error screen with a big red exclamation mark.
And a link to Contact Apple Support.
The support site tells owners should do a forced restart, but if that doesn't work, it'll need to be sent out and serviced.
Some Apple Watch owners shared their experiences about the glitch on Reddit, adding that Apple Support is addressing the problem by sending them replacement watches.
It's another software stumble for Apple.
Back in May, Apple's mobile iOS update caused some iPads to lock up, preventing the tablets from rebooting with an error 56 message.
Apple also dealt with drama with its newest piece of hardware The wireless Airpods headphones were delayed nearly two months before going on sale this week.
Next year could be a fresh start as 2017 is expected to be Apple's biggest year ever.
Not only is the next iPhone expected to get a dramatic change in, and possibly remove the home button.
in addition Apple is rumored to be working on new products like smart glasses.
And sources tell us Apple is also working on its own version of an Amazon Echo smart speaker, which could come with cameras.
